60/40

January 24, 2010

I’m at a point where I use my phone and computer to access the internet nearly equally.

Once upon a time saying you were using the computer was synonymous with using the internet. It still kind of is, but it now I actually stop and think about what someone actually meant when they say something along those lines. <– mouthful, lol.

This isn’t a new phenomenon or anything, I just randomly found it interesting again after following @ShaunKing on Twitter for the last week and a half. He’s orchestrating aid for Haiti through his Twitter account (also via mobile apps) just as much as other means of communication. He also mentions the concept of red tape a lot, which probably has a lot to do with the evolution from a computer-centric internet. He was able to communicate with Dr. Sanjay Gupta (CNN) and get five neurosurgeons to Haiti, and all via Twitter. Try that in “real life” and he would likely still be trying to get a hold of him.

I admitted Twitter did indeed make itself useful a while back, but I do have doubts about it as a professional medium for most individuals. Even though I use my own to talk about news and journalism, I also just made mention of my cafeteria mac and cheese being crunchy. I actually see this as a good thing though.
